In general, along with “mother” and “father,” the proper term for a gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender person — whether single or in a relationship — raising a child or children. Because of the blended nature of many families led by LGBTQ parents, ask the source which term he or she prefers, when possible. Mention a parent’s sexual orientation, genetic relationship to the child or conception technique only when germane.
